Dr. Filbert Bartoli is currently the Chandler Weaver Chair and Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at Lehigh University, and Chair of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. From 2000 to 2005, he was a Program Director in the Division of Electrical and Communications Systems at the National Science Foundation, and prior to that was Head of the Advanced Materials Section in the Optical Sciences Division at the Naval Research Laboratory. He is a Fellow of OSA and IEEE, and recently served as IEEE Photonics Society Vice President for Finance and Administration and Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics. His past research explored topics such as infrared detection, inorganic and organic optoelectronics, semiconductor physics, quantum well devices, and nonlinear optics. His current research focuses on the design, fabrication, and characterization of photonic and plasmonic nanostructures for biosensor, solar cell, and slow light applications. His group explores the interface between nanopatterned metal surfaces and biomolecules, combining the advantages of plasmonic, interferometric, and microfluidic technologies to develop new tools for biomedical discovery and other photonic applications. His research publications include over 320 technical papers and 19 patents.
